The core mission of Extended Education Ventures (EEV) is to enable the development, delivery, and promotion of continuing and professional education programs across the University, bringing proven experience, a service orientation, and a collaborative mindset to campus partnerships that translate university expertise into meaningful career-focused education and training opportunities.
With over 100 years’ experience delivering programs for nontraditional students and a scalable staffing model, we have the expertise and resources to help you. EEV works with academic units in a variety of ways to develop and deliver both credit-bearing and non-credit programs, providing opportunities for faculty and university affiliates to engage with non-traditional students from a variety of backgrounds. Teaching in these programs helps faculty place their expertise in context, enhancing their teaching, research, and service.
Continuing education was launched at UT Austin in 1909 to "increase the usefulness of the University to the people of Texas." Throughout our history, campus-wide collaboration has resulted in innovations and cutting-edge delivery to serve students and their communities. Visionaries tackled barriers to education with offerings that evolved from by-mail correspondence into 24/7 online courses.
Through the years, programs such as the University Interscholastic League and radio station KUT were created and nurtured. Later, educators responded to business needs in the oil and gas industry to create professional training to support that leading Texas industry, just as we continue to address needs across high-tech and other growing industries.
